What is Kwanzaa? by Mary Morrissey

Today is the first day of Kwanzaa.

Kwanzaa is a unique African American celebration with focus on the traditional African values of family, community responsibility, commerce, and self-improvement. Kwanzaa is neither political nor religious and despite some misconceptions, is not a substitute for Christmas.

Today, I invite you to make it a day of celebrating your own values.

“Kwanzaa is not the tool of its creator. Kwanzaa has a life of its own. Kwanzaa is about the spirit of people — all people regardless of color or race. Kwanzaa is a holiday of the human spirit.” – Author Unknown.

Today can be a day for all of us to celebrate family, community, commerce, and self-improvement.

Make it a great day!
